You look in the mirror and you see fine lines, age spots, wrinkles, hollow cheeks, and loss of elasticity. Does your face need a lift? No problem, Miami face lift patients can get their youth back! Here is how:
While injectable fillers like Botox can help ease wrinkles, they're not meant to last longterm, which is where a face lift comes in. This cosmetic procedure can last up to 10 years or more. Your plastic surgeon makes incisions in front and behind your ears, along the hairline. Extra skin is then removed, and some fat may even be taken out. Sometimes muscle tissues and skin must be reshaped. Once complete, the skin is sutured into place.
It's important to have realistic expectations for this type of surgery. A face lift will not make you look 20 years old again, but it will eliminate that tired and aged look, making you appear refreshed and definitely younger. With that said, many people fear looking "pulled" or "strange" after surgery, which is why it's crucial to choose an experienced surgeon who's done many of these types of surgery. Done right, a face lift can look very natural, making it seem like you just returned from a relaxing spa weekend.
There's also a trend towards getting a face lift sooner rather than later. While in the past, most patients were in their early and mid 50s, doctors are now seeing patients coming in 10 years earlier, with many of them as young as 45.
